So Easy (to hold you)

So Easy (to hold you)

A Poem by Beatrice Mars

You're just so skinny, 
So easy to put my arms around, 
So easy to hug 
And hold on tight,
So easy to break
Your bones and lay 
You flat. 

So easy to love you 
And so hard to hate, 
But so so 
Hard - 

But maybe
You're the opposite, 
So hard to 
Love and so wide, 
So hard to get 
My arms around 
You, and so 
Hard to understand,
So easy to hold at 
Arms length, so easy to
Despise and so easy to 
Show contempt - 

But maybe you're the
Opposite, so lithe
and stream lined, 
So easy to worship
And so easy to put a 
Knife in. 

(Maybe you're everything, so beautiful and disgusting it's too hard too behold.)
